* Outboard motor repair for the average guy * Fix up an old outboard and SAVE $1000 or more compared to buying a new motor! With a little know-how and a few common tools, you can fix an old motor—bring it back from the dead. Sometimes all it takes is a squirt of WD-40 into the cylinder and a new spark plug. Or a new set of points and condensers—which do not require expert knowledge or black magic to install. Maybe the carburetor needs cleaning and adjusting. You can do it! Max E. Wawrzyniak III is an outboard motor guru. He advises you to find an old motor at a yard sale for $100 or so (and he tells you exactly which ones to look for), and fix it up—rather than spending $1500 or more on a new motor. He is a big fan of “cheap power.” Get on the water with money left in your pocket. With a basic understanding of how these motors work, a little logical thinking, and a few hours’ work, you can go boating for a fraction of what everyone else has to pay. Also—for the boater who already owns an outboard motor of any age—this book demystifies these internal-combustion marvels that can bring such frustration if they malfunction. You’ll learn how they work, and the simple things you can do to keep them running forever. What Max teaches are not only money-saving skills, but can also be life-saving, as you will no longer be helpless in the face of engine trouble on the water. His clear instructions and over one hundred color photographs will make anyone into a capable outboard mechanic. INCLUDES: What to Buy, Where to Find It, Tools Needed and Where to Begin, The Ignition System, Carburetors, Water Pump Repairs, Recoil Starters, Fuel Tanks, Propellors, Lower Units, Emergency Shut-Down, Fuel Pump Conversion, Remote Controls: Shift and Throttle, Remote Control: Steering, Tiller Conversion, Trouble-Shooting, and Onboard Spares and Tools. This book has always been very popular and well-used in its print edition. Now it's available as an e-book so you can load it into your phone or tablet and always have this wealth of repair / maintenance information at your fingertips, even when out on your boat.

This densely illustrated, hands-on guide to diesel engine maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair renders its subject more user-friendly than ever before. Finally, boatowners who grew up with gas engines can set aside their fears about tinkering with diesels, which are safer and increasingly more prevalent. As in other volumes in the International Marine Sailboat Library, every step of every procedure is illustrated, so that users can work from the illustrations alone.

Diesel engine systems covered include: mechanical; oil; fresh- and raw-water cooling; low- and high-pressure fuel; exhaust; starting; charging; transmission and stern gear.
